Scott Joplin (1867-1917) was an American composer and pianist renowned for his ragtime compositions. “Maple Leaf Rag” in particular achieved great fame and popularity, becoming one of ragtime’s most influential pieces, and has been dubbed “the archetypal rag”. The roots of ragtime originate from African-American communities in the late 19th century, identifiable by its syncopated, or ragged, rhythms.

This is a challenging recital piece, combining scalic passages, arpeggiated phrases, and syncopated rhythms.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.
